Hi, I’m Mary Gallagher Stout and today we’re at the Lorton Workhouse and we’re creating a very stony, very sleepy lion. And in this segment we are going to be spattering on some paints gray, very diluted paints gray with a stiff brush, you can use a toothbrush or a stenciling brush. Just something very stiff and what you’re gonna do is, we’re gonna spatter, is the technique, and we’re gonna spatter it on all over our lion, our very sleepy lion. And we’re building up textures, so this is what we’re gonna be doing. You can just have so much fun with it, and let me show you how to do it. So you just take your stiff brush, this is a stencil brush that I’m using. And you want it to be pretty wet, not too wet, so. Just start spattering on the paints gray and you can really practice the direction that you wanna shoot your paint in on another piece of paper if you’re uncomfortable with going right for it. But you should just go for it, because we’re doing a lion here and come on, we’re ferocious, right, ferociously fun lion. So, we’re just gonna build up all the speckly texture, and see we have some big ones here that I’m not really fond of, so I’m just gonna dab those out, see, and perfect. We want it to be very irregular and if you have white spots, dark spots, little spatters, big spatters, the more irregular the better. We’re trying to make it look very gritty, because stone is gritty, and that’s what we’re trying to create, this stony, stony lion. And this project is very easy and very fun and little kids love it, and so do adults. And this is actually a technique that I use in my fow finishing when I’m doing stone walls and such. It really amazing what just spattering would bring in terms of grittiness to a texture. Okay. So the speckling is complete, and I’m gonna blow dry it, because I like it to be a little darker, a little bit warmer in terms of dark. Coz the next glaze that we’re gonna put on is a darker glaze and it’s more gray. So what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna make it really gritty, coz I like my stone to be neaty gritty and so I’m gonna put on, probably two more layers of grit and wash. Blow drying them after each time to help build up the warmth. But you can stop here and go to the next step, I like to do two or three grit layers like this. So, we’re finish with our speckling and we’re getting ready to lay on our next coat which is a light gray, which is a custom gray that we’re gonna make ourselves, it’s a very warm gray and I’ll show you how to do that next.
